Performance degradation monitoring of centrifugal compressor provides a means for the operators predict the behavior of their machines. Understanding the key principles in performance evaluation is essential for operators to benefit from this approach. In this paper, common performance degradation mechanisms found in centrifugal compressors for the oil and gas industry are outlined and related to their associated performance characteristics. Various analysis and evaluation techniques and approaches are elaborated with relevant requirements and assumptions for practical site application. A case study is also presented to demonstrate the application of performance degradation monitoring in a real-life operating environment. The benefits and limitations of the approach are also discussed. When combined with other condition monitoring approaches, this method provides a powerful tool to analyze and monitor centrifugal compressor performance which will then lead to useful recommendations for maintenance and operational interventions.
